Dogfish Head Burton Baton

Dogfish Head Burton Baton

Ratebeer 3.74 98th percentile
Beer Advocate A-

To get a full appreciation for grandness of this beer, please read the Ratebeer description.

Taste +5

Whenever you open a bottle of Dogfish Head, you expect great things. Once the cap came off you know things were going to be good; the aroma was ripe with citrus, pine, slightly fruit and vanilla. Over every taste bud was draped a creamy citrus, vanilla and oak blanket. Picture a 90 minute IPA with the added goodness of wood notes, vanilla and resin.

Aftertaste +1

The creamy ending was all tangerine and grapefruits.

Alcohol Content +1 10%

Yup, that explains the warmth heading down my gullet.

Value +1

This is a good and strong IPA with the added benefit of French Oak aging.

Ingame Enhancement +1

Still in Seattle. This brew renewed my love for beer after the Paulaner Oktoberfest palate shattering.

Overall 9/10

This glorious brew blends two great ideas: a strong IPA and wood aged beer. This is one beer you must try before you die.
